Not a Typical Boy Hero Alger Story!
I am sad that after listening to Timothy Crump's Ward, there are no more Alger books for me to listen to! I hope Librivox will record more soon.
Timothy Crump's Ward does have a typical Alger teen boy as a main character, but an eight year old girl is the one that has most of the adventures.
I really enjoyed this story. As with all Alger books, the coincidences can be unrealistic, but through it all, good triumphs over evil. If you like turn of the century children's books, I think you'll enjoy it too!
